What goes on tour.......
David Hardcastle and James Anderson were lucky enough to be invited to Tobermore’s manufacturing plant in Belfast recently to experience, first hand, one of the biggest producers of concrete paving products in Europe.
An early flight from Newcastle got them straight into the action at 9.30am and, guided by Tobermore’s enthusiastic MD, David Henderson, they acquired a huge amount of knowledge on the materials, quality and processes involved and can now specify with confidence. Seven hours of CPD was then complemented by an evening of hard networking in the bars of Belfast and complimentary tickets to the amazing Titanic experience.
The restored Harland and Wolff drawing office was especially relevant. This trip has definitely sown the seeds for a Niven-on-Tour destination in the near future!
